Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 1, 2017
(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar today announced his certification of Senate Bill 1, the general appropriations bill that was approved by both houses during the recently gaveled regular session of the 85th Texas Legislature. The bill now heads to the desk of Gov. Greg Abbott.
SB 1 appropriates $216.8 billion in total spending for the state's budget during the 2018-19 biennium.
"Even before I released the Biennial Revenue Estimate back in January, lawmakers understood this session would be difficult, and coming to a budget consensus would require sacrifice and compromise," Hegar said. "I commend legislators for crafting a conservative budget that remains within my revenue forecast."
In 2015, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 855, which requires state agencies to publish a list of the three most commonly used Web browsers on their websites. The Texas Comptroller’s most commonly used Web browsers are Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Apple Safari.
